. >> jennifer: that's former mississippi governor haley barbour, defending his con trover shall decision to hand down 200 pardons. i too am a strong believer in second chances, and when i was governor of michigan i issued orders for nearly 200 which is the state record. toni bunton is one of the people i felt deserved a second chance. she spent more than 16 years behind bars for her part in a drug deal that ended in murder but in 2009 after a lot of deliberation i decided to free toni from her 25 to 50-year sentence. and tonight toni is joining us from detroit. toni welcome inside "the war room." >> thank you for inviting me. >> jennifer: so tell us what have you been doing since your sentence was commuted? >> i graduated from the university of michigan with a master's degree in women's studies. i work for a nonprofit organization in detroit that provides after-school programs for girls, and ged classes for woman, and i work as a community organizer in southwest detroit, and i plan to go to law school. >> jennifer: all right. so no incidents, nothing has hand that
is the campaign is over. >> okay. as of only -- not only her, former mississippi governor haley barbour who i think is smart when he's briefing on politics, described what the gop needs to do right now. let's listen to haley barbour. >> we've got to give our political organizational activity, you know, a very serious proctology exam. i think that's the only -- we need to look everywhere is my point. >> you know, he's deep south and conservative, mayor, but i always listen to him for the truth, especially when he's with some other republicans trying to teach them politics. you know, there's the only guy to come out ahead of katrina because he knew how to get the job done. what do you think of that? when parties get their butts kicked like democrats did in '72, republicans did in '64, when they thought they had -- well, those races didn't look good to begin with, but right now what do you do when you're in a party leadership position? >> if they don't adhere to what bobby jindal is talking about, the senator from new hampshire. if they don't understand haley barbour, i can assure you democrats
extravaganza with former mississippi governor haley barbour and cnn's dana bash. i'm candy crowley. this is "state of the union." >>> they are ships passing in the night and the day. this day mitt romney will be in iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia, while the president heads to new hampshire, south of florida, back up north to ohio, out west to colorado. monday romney goes to florida, virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. obama counters with wisconsin, ohio, and a closing rally in iowa. the biggest surprise in that final 48 hours is romney's last minute bid in pennsylvania. polls in the state favor president obama, but not by as much as they once did. the romney campaign calls it expanding the electoral map. the obama campaign calls it a fairy tale. well, in the parallel universe phase of the campaign. joining me is chicago mayor and former white house chief of staff rahm emanuel. let me start by showing a poll out of pennsylvania showing that the president's numbers have been slipping since september, and it's now looking like not a four-point race in pennsylvania, which is insi
party. >> haley barbour, an ex-governor and former head of the gop spelled out the preferred republican story line on why romney lost on the "today" show today. here is the first part of that excuse. >> they decided they're going to have this negative personal campaign to try to convince people that romney was a bad person. they didn't attack his policies very much. they said he was a vulture capitalist, that he was a bona fide bureaucrat married to an equestrian. dr. peterson, first the president's camp didn't call romney vulture capitalist, rick perry did. >> exactly. >> second, how does haley barbour say with a straight face that romney was innocent of negative campaign tactics? i seem to recall about 37 lies delivered in about two weeks. >> i mean, again, this is unfathomable and maybe a little bit of a waste of our time. remember, we did address and attack the policies. he just kept changing positions. when we wanted to talk about reproductive rights for women, he want 20d change his position. it's not that people didn't deal with romney on the issues, that's the campaign and pundi
day. >> and americans are not stupid. michael, haley barbour, the former rnc chair, made an interesting statement about rebuilding the republican party. i'll read it to you. he says we've got to give our political organizational activity a very serious proctology exam. we need to look everywhere. i guess that's where they need to start, is it? >> haley barbour is one of the smartest republicans out there with one of the most colorful ways of saying things. i think he's absolutely right. they were just worked over in terms of technology, in terms of outreach, in terms of message. there's a lot of things that republicans and really they're all saying it right now. they really have to go back to the drawing board, do a real study of what went wrong, and then really begin now because they have time before the next midterms, before the next presidential election, to begin to shift the party in a direction where it will be able to get some of this nonwhite male vote, which is really what the republican party needs to do. it can't -- if it gets 60% of the white male vote or the
, former mississippi governor, haley barbour said the gop needs to look deep into their souls. >> we've got to give our political organizational activity, you know, a very serious proctology exam. i think that's the only -- we need to look everywhere is my point. >> that would be up where? most people see a party which is still leaving minority voters by the the wayside. the images of long lines on election day are still burned into the voters' minds. these lines were engineered by who? republicans. trying to suppress voters in democratic areas. in florida, republican lawmakers pack the ballot with unnecessary measures to keep voters in the line for as long as they possibly could so they wouldn't do what? vote. scott walker's colleague in wisconsin said mitt romney would have absolutely won the state of wisconsin if they had just had some voter i.d. laws. right? president obama won wisconsin with more than 205,000 votes. that's a lot of people to suppress in order to make a sure romney absolutely would win type situation. don't you think? one of the most outrageous post-election comments ab
mississippi governor haley barbour essentially saying, you know what, maybe we do need to reconsider having taxes go up for the wealthy as long as we get something in return. and i can guarantee the white house and president obama may show those quotes of john boehner and eric cantor. >> haley barbour on taxes, and this is from the republican governors association meeting in la las vegas. quote, if there's enough savings, if there's enough certainty about tax reform the next few years, i would, former governor haley barbour said when asked whether his party should consider softening its opposition to letting the bush tax cuts on the wealthiest expire. i mean, that's just an amazing, amazing, amazing switch from where we even were on the campaign trail last week. >> well, that's right, luke. and also governor bob mcdonnell said something else. elections have consequences and that, of course, was a line republicans used in 2011 during the debt ceiling negotiations as well as all of the other times they were actually trying to trim the budget deficit saying, look, this is why we were elected i
, this is haley barbour, i have to play this sound, this is haley barbour at the republican governors association conference in las vegas on wednesday. let's take a listen. >> we've got to give our political organizational activity, you know, a very serious -- proct togethology ex. we need to look everywhere is my point. >> seven-second pause and what he comes up with is a proctology exam. >> probably a good place to look. >> you know, i think it's kind of ironic that romney should be the instrument for the party, the republican party suddenly shifting leftward in a sense because romney came in six years ago as a moderate -- almost a liberal republican, a moderate, steadily moved to the right and this republican primary process is so brutal and inevitably skews the whole conversation to the right and i still don't quite understand how they're going to get past that and get past the fact that the huge part of the coalition are people who are exclusionary and who are social conservatives. >> look at their voting base, it's still like southern white male. >> can we pause for a second to appreciate j

and what went wrong, but i want to play what haley barbour said on the "today" show. yesterday there was talk from republicans about demographics and trying to understand how to bring in latinos and people of color and even women. now haley barbour is going back to plan a, which is blaming the story sandy. >> they decided to have this negative, personal campaign to convince people romney was a bad person. they didn't attack his policies very much. hurricane sandy saved barack obama's presidency. it broke the momentum that romney had coming in at the end of the october, but that's not chris christie's fault. >> he lets chris christie off the hook and blames sandy and not the larger concerns about the party brand and moving ahead. they think it's a storm. >> i think that the governor misunderstands the significance of the christie moment. americans liked to see the democratic standard bearer working together with the man who delivered the keynote address for the republican national convention. that's what we want more of. we don't want to be led fringes or polarization. we want t
continued all through today especially with former mississippi governor haley barbour speaking on the "today" show. >> hurricane sandy saved barack obama's presidency. it broke the momentum romney had coming in the end of october. >> this is a narrative republicans are telling themselves, that the beltway media is also now starting to tell itself because they keep hearing republicans say it. it is not a theory born from reality. this is a checkable thing, emperical idea. their theory is mitt romney was on track to win this thing if it weren't for that blasted storm. this is something we can check. easy. let's start with this. we're all in agreement that the polls were correct despite all the nonsense ahead of the election how the polls seemed so wrong before the election, now that the election has happened, it has been proven and we can all agree that the polls reflected math and not some a nefarious agenda to make conservatives feel bad. the polls were right, we can all agree. out of all the polls, let's look at the one we know now was any mathemat mathematically accurate tracking poll goin
haley barbour echoed that with this comment on the g.o.p.'s electoral ground game. >> we've got to give our political organizational activity, you know, a very serious proctology exam. >> eliot: hmm. there you go. that's quality political analysis. for more on romney's remarks and the future of the g.o.p. and the hispanic vote, i'm joined by a great friend, luis gutierrez democrat of illinois and a member of the hispanic caucuses. i have to ask you after hearing mitt romney, what gifts did you get, buddy? you gotta fess up to get your vote, what were the gifts? >> eliot i called my wife right away. i said check the mail. she said we get everything by direct deposit honey. we gotta wait for the bank account to clear it. it is pretty silly. you and i remember we talked about the 13,000, 14,000 young people who stood at navy pier who signed up after the president said i'm not going to deport anymore young undocumented youth. you know what they came with? a check for $465. right? and the patience to wait in that
report from capitol hill. plus, former mississippi governor haley barbour's shall i say unique take on what republicans need to do after losing the election. >> we've got to give our political organizational activity, you know, a very serious proctology exam. >> ouch. how easy will be it for republicans to fix their problem? i'll ask our political panel. you can join our conversation. you can find us at @tamron hall and @newsnation. think my pick for our friday song, i think.

said was haley barbour. you don't get more conservative than haley barbour as a governor went through this. he understood what it was about. the other thing i'd sea to you, the tea party, you will have to show me where the tea party had an impact anywhere in the congressional races or senate races except to lose one and help mitt romney. you are talking about organization. >> tea party has infrastructure, you know it. >> bob: did a lot of good for allen west, didn't it? >> eric: the history of the tea party is after a president wins, after president obama won in 2008, 2010, they were strong. 2014, they will be strong in congress. >> greg: the republicans should act like democrats to immerse themselveses in pop culture and go in and entering that world previously they have been scared of. >> eric: can't we all just get along on the right? coming up, first it was twinkies now airports and big box retailers. what will bad labor relations mean for your trip gnom home? and the trip to the store. ♪ ♪ >>> i'm shannon bream in washington. the big story here is the escalating conflict the
't want to work. okay. and former mississippi governor, haley bar rour barbour, saying party needs to do some soul searching. >> we've got to give our political organizational activity, you know, a very serious proctology exam. we need to look everywhere is my point. >> yeah. you know what? i will say -- and i don't hand you compliments often -- but you've been saying this during the primary process, it started. and now it seems to me that it's great to hear these gentlemen coming forward and speaking truth to what mitt romney said. but it's just too easy right now. it should have been done in the primary process. >> it's just like when i was talking about people in the conservative entertainment complex talking in ways that we'll never win the suburbs of philadelphia, bucks county, pennsylvania, or the i-4 corridor. in this case, donny deutsch, i said all along that mitt romney's biggest problem wasn't that he was too conservative. it's that he didn't understand conservatism like margaret thatcher, the shopkeeper's daughter, understood conservatism or ronald reagan, the alcoholic son th
the national feeling here. when katrina happened, i got a call the day after from haley barbour, the republican governor from mississippi, who, of course, is a friend of mine. and he said, i need guardsmen. can you send me guardsmen? pennsylvania had, you know, no nickel on that dime. we're thousands -- hundreds of miles away from the gulf, but we have 20,000 guardsmen, and i activated 2,100 and sent them down to mississippi and to louisiana, and the interesting thing, chris, is i got tons of letters citizens of those states thanking me, but i also got letters from my own guardsmen, who said it was the best thing they've done since they've been in the national guard, to help americans from another area of the country who are suffering. and that's the spirit that takes over, and it's, as you said, what makes us a special place. >> well, that's why people like you and they like haley barbour, thank you, governor rendell, and thank you, david corn. you never get to be a governor, you don't get to know what that's like. and for the latest on the devastation on the jersey shore, we turn to ron allen
-- >> that seemed to be a kind of a mash up of haley barbour and mitt romney robo call, but needless to say -- which might not be the most effective campaign tool, but in the romney call, the basically they're using the sound from the president talking about revenge. my question to you is, does that -- to me that smacks of desperation. does anybody believes the president is a vengeful character at all on the national stage and this is the closing argument you want to make going into tuesday? >> at this point they're sort of pushing an anger point seeing if they can get one bit more of an edge with turning out their base voters with this kind of thing. i don't think it's going to make very much of a difference. >> pa michael eric dyson, we talk about how there's been a concerted effort on many folks on the right to paint the president as other, outside the mainstream, and paul ryan questioning or calling into question the president's faith in effect, saying that his policies would undermine the judeo christian roots of this society. >> yeah. it's pretty desperate. it's vicious, it's against the best
is trotting out for why mitt romney may not win. haley barbour talking about the hurricane broke romney's momentum. it's out there as a means they can seize on to should things not go their way. >> if there was an election on george bush election eight dice after katrina he would have seen a different outcome. it was not preordained this would work in obama's favor. it's the way he handled the storm and reassured people and has not let problems fester and worked with fema, reformed fema, and christie and cuomo to get help to people as quickly as possible. even though it's still not reaching everyone. hugo can speak to that. >> i just think it's strange to hear the republicans talking about excuses for not winning the day before the election. i mean, it really is -- i mean, there's going to be a lot of talk after the election obviously, depending on who wins, about why they blew it. >> they believe in preemption. the reality is, they're trying to gin up the excuse now to figure out after what you think may happen after that storm of obama blows through, but i think it speaks to this enth
how much of this was strategically bad moves. rnc chairman haley barbour personally blames romney's loss on negative ads, and a lot of people suggested they let the democrats define him and that that was a mistake on behalf of the romney campaign. but haley barbour also, and we heard this suggested before, blamed mother nature. take a look. >> hurricane sandy save d barac obama's presidency. it broke the momentum that romney had coming in the end of october. >> i don't know, john. did luck have something to do with this? did chris christie have something to do with this? did bad strategic decisions and how and when they spent this money have something to do with romney's loss? >> what happened there, what hurricane sandy did was take away the one path that mitt romney had to victory. the bigger problem for mitt romney was a bigger demographic problem where he could only narrowly get through these states, and everything had to go right for mitt romney. the problem for republicans is they have to come up with a broader based strategy so they are competing in more states. it's not ju
republican haley barbour, one of romney's biggest supporters, says romney may have lost momentum. i'll speak live with a republican congresswoman about what republican insiders are saying about that very comment. we'rwith questions fromtump sombing elections.kies do you know where your polling place is? maybe somewhere around my house. mine's just, right over that way. well you can find out exactly where it is using bing elections. it's a good day for politics. which way do you lean politically? conservative. republican. well, using the bing news selector you can find news from whichever way you lean.

're not going through withdrawal? >> not at all. >> mike feldman, haley barbour is one that believes that sandy could be the bump that the president needed to get back on the right side of this election. >> well, look, that sounds like a little pre-emptive spinning of the outcome from governor barbour. i don't know. nobody is smart enough to know how the storm is going to play out politically. it has dominated coverage in the last few days in a critical time of an ee electric of the i was watching last night and the first 15 minutes of the evening newscast was about the storm, as it should be, with president obama and chris christie demonstrating 7:15, 7:20. that was governor romney's portion of the broadcast. i think that's emblematic of how the country is absorbing their news. it pulls the politics down in the public conscious. >> the last four days would have simply been, governor romney brings his message of change. president obama defends his first term agenda. that didn't happen. >> instead, what you're seeing is power of incumbency on display. obama's making the argument to keep the stat
will, and there's this assumption whether you heard haley barbour say it publicly, i talked to strategists on both sides, on the republican side worry about it privately and the democratic side hopeful for it. they think there's some sort of bounce for the president on sandy. nobody can point to any metric yet to prove this, but when you think about where things were a week ago, a week ago there was this assumption that, boy, all the intangibles here at the end were going to -- >> let me -- >> -- to romney. now it feels there's intangibles that may favor the president. >> i get the sense that the love of romney by the right and other political players is based on sand in this case. and guys like the governor of new jersey and all the voices out there that haven't come to romney's help this week, they don't love him enough to say, wait a minute, forget this storm, this guy is great. >> i don't know. >> i don't hear a lot of that. >> it's like mark rypien as the redskins quarterback. they loved him when he won the super bowl. >> i think they decided romney is good enough to wi
-read opinion pages." we've got one from governor haley barbour. "the washington posts," politics has no place in disaster. in part he writes this. i'm surprised to the point of disbelief at the reactions from both right and left that new jersey governor chris christie has said favorable things about the obama administration's efforts in those early days after hurricane sandy. republicans worried that christie saying anything favorable about obama is politically disloyal need to remember that a governor's first responsibility is to his or her state and its people. those in the media looking to determine political winners and losers in this situation should stop. we republicans ought to be proud of public officials who, like christie, are faithful to the job they're elected to do. thank you, haley barbour. thank you, alex, for picking that. >> the governor of mississippi during katrina. >> he would know. and it all stops, right, in time of crisis? >> almost two minds of that. >> why are you of two minds about that? >> on the one hand, haley barbour did go through the crucible of katrina and bon
